“It’s my great pleasure to assist clients in achieving the environment they’ve dreamed of by creating a place where they feel comfortable and inspired, truly at home.” – Jan Kyle

“I am a commercial interior designer, so I know my way around the design world. This year I decided to redesign several rooms in my home. Being rather tired of the design ideas coming out of my brain, I hired the wonderful designer, Jan Kyle. I am in awe of her talent and broad depth of creativity. Her design sense is so fresh and sophisticated. It’s enlightening. My old space was heavy and tired. Jan’s transformation added to order to my chaos. She readily understood and further enhanced my monochromatic color palette by adding the appropriate textures and tweaking the values. She eliminated unnecessary and overly scaled furniture and introduced cleaner lines and shapes. The new pieces have calmed down the space and allowed some of the existing pieces a more outstanding voice. I’m excited when I walk into my room. How was it she could understand my space better than I could? How smart am I to have hired Jan? Very.” – Devan Hartnett
